FPA DFW Career Day Information 


The 13th Annual FPA DFW Career Day will be held Friday, January 27, 2017, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Addison in conjunction with the FPA DFW Chapter Meeting

What is Career Day?

Career Day is a full day of networking and interviews.  Our mission is to help candidates gain employment opportunities to further their career goals and, at the same time, help employers find their next Star to add value to their firm.  There is no better opportunity for you to get significant face time with numerous prospective employers/employees, network with the FPA DFW chapter members, and further the profession’s brightest minds.  There are many chances throughout the day for networking and ad hoc interviews.

Would you like to interview potential candidates? Send your contact information and level of interest to no later than Friday, December 16, 2016.

RSVP at your earliest convenience as spots are limited.

Please save the file as Last Name, First Name.pdf.  Email your RESUME ONLY (no cover letter) to FRIDAY DECEMBER 16, 2016 to be considered for interviews.  In your email to FPA DFW, please indicate whether you are looking for a full time or internship position.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  The FPA DFW Career Development Committee highly values the integrity of the Career Day process and its participants.  The Career Development Committee does not match resumes with participating firms.  We provide a centralized location for firms to interview potential candidates. Participating firms and candidates are subject to change.  If a participating firm contacts interviewees prior to Career Day, they will automatically forfeit their interviewing times for the entire day.  Likewise, if an interviewing candidate contacts an interviewing firm prior to Career Day, that interviewee will forfeit all of their scheduled interviews and no refunds will be issued.
